Pedal Forward

Share your love of biking and take a friend for a ride

Martha and her husband and two kids love to travel around Boulder by bike. “It’s fun and easy and the kids really enjoy it,” she says. So when her neighbor Barb told her one day how impressed she was that they all biked but that she could never do that, Martha decided to invite Barb for a ride. They pedaled together from their neighborhood along the local bike path to a frozen yogurt shop. Barb was amazed at how easy—and fun—the trip was, and vowed to ride her bike more often.

If you enjoy biking and have heard friends or co-workers say they’re interested in biking too but are uncomfortable riding on their own, or don’t know what paths to travel or what to wear, pay it forward and offer to take them for a ride.
